COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why is there only one time of year – as goblins, ghouls, and ghosts frolic on front lawns – when we embrace THE FEAR? At all other times, THE FEAR dominates us, controls us, and prevents us from greatness. What is there to THE FEAR? Disagreement? Criticism? Humiliation? Whatever THE FEAR is that consumes you, embrace it, along with this Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Only then will the true artist in you rise up.

Arayaga2 (2224) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of spritzy pumpkin-pie spices... and bubblegum... a lot! The bg is there in the taste too, but it’s more an earthy, boozy, astringent spice beverage. $2/12oz

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from The Beer Store, Nashua. Appearance is clear, dark orange/ruby red with nice sparkle, finger-width beige head with poor retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices. Taste is pumpkin pie spices, caramel malts. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with smooth, thin texture, average carbonation, pleasant slight warming in the esophagus, finish as taste with slight bitterness at the absolute end. Overall, pretty standard flavor for a pumpkin beer--pumpkin--but alcohol is hidden well and it's not too sweet or over the top.

Drinked in bottle bb 11.8.18. On the nose spice like ginger, gineper, cinnamon a important alcoholic warmness. In mouth is full bodied, quite carbonated, warm and alcoholic, a interesting smoked and torrified note. The perfect beer for an autumn evening

Is a marvelous beer, a beautiful dark brown colour with a creamy white head, perfect carbonation in the glass. The aroma is spiced and warm, in mouth is quite creamy but has a caratheristic that personally I don't like : a strong alcoholic flavour. A good autumn beer but not my favorite

Dark brown, small head, clear. Aroma full of spices. Taste is full of herbs and spices, some medical notes. Bitter finish. Not the best without solid body

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2017 Bottle from Bison Beer, right about Hallowe’en! Pours black ‘n’ tan. The aroma is sweet with cinnamon and other spices. Very unusual taste echoes the aroma. Cloves and a very distinctive spice I can’t quite place - possibly nutmeg?

From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours dark brown with a very thick head. Sweet , sticky , taste of burnt malt and spice. Like a very sweet milled cold wine. Ok but way too sweet for my pallet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

orbit (329) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2017
Very good pumpkin ale, the aroma leaves something to be desired, but the final taste is of a real pumpkin ale with all the autumn herbs and spices, like a little halloween cake.
